In 2001 Turnin Brakes shimmering acoustic guitars, vocal harmonies as soft and refreshing as a gentle summer breeze ‘ were captured perfectly on their 2001 debut album, The Optimist, featuring songs such as Underdog (Save Me) and Emergency 72.
‘We have never duplicated the sound of that first record,’ says Gale. ‘It’s an iconic album. We’ve since made records that have been just as good, but that one captured some sort of zeitgeist. On the surface it was melancholy, but underneath it was hopeful. That’s why we called it The Optimist.’

Pop megastar Lady Gaga tweeted that she’s finished her third album. She has polished off the album in an unlikely musical spot: the Midwest US state of Nebraska.
She tweeted: “In Nebraska, finishing up record today. I’m so proud of the album: I keep dancing+drinking: metal/techno rock journey of a woman on the run.”
She also tweeted a photo of herself, stamped ‘GAGA’ in red and displaying the release date of her album, and showing off the new, weird facial accoutrements that give her severe cheekbones and sharp eyebrows.
The album’s self-titled single has now spent five weeks at the top of the Billboard charts.
Born This Way the album will be released on May 23
